abstract

  • Patients with HL have an overall excellent outcome from treatment but also pose some of the most complex challenges of cancer survivorship due to many late effects (eg, second malignancies, thyroid disease, cardiovascular disease, and altered reproductive and sexual function). Our finding that patients with HL with a hospital discharge diagnosis of an AI have a substantially higher risk of dying, emphasizes that underlying chronic diseases, such as AIs, should be high of the list of survivorship concerns for clinicians that treat HL.
